Abstract

An enantioselective [3+2] annulation of nitroolefins with racemic Morita–Baylis–Hillman carbonates of isatins catalyzed by α-isocupreine has been developed. Chiral spirocyclic 2-oxindoles bearing an unusual cyclopentadiene motif were produced in excellent enantioselectivity (up to 98% ee) after the tandem elimination of HNO2 in the presence of DIPEA.
